You know I think I'm going to have to move the US of A. The pricing up here is ridiculous that same part MSO-E006 is $6k plus 13% taxes and that's not even installed. The CF engine cover vents MSO-E005 are an astounding $12k. I do not know why we Canadians always have to pay so much more for everything. Oh yes I know why its due to our great health care system. Yeeeee haaaaa. Cheers.....??They are available in carbon from MSO.
On a previous price list that was floating around I believe it was listed as 'Carbon Fibre Rear Deck Vent' and priced at $4,080.
Markjayw you are partially correct in your above noted statement, and I only say this because of recent events. According to a appended clause which was affixed to the bottom of a price list received from my dealership it clearly states "Sustained hard driving may cause discolouration". So I guess who ever decides to purchase this item better make sure they do not drive to hard for to long. So whats the point of making a part if it cannot hold up to the extreme elements. Why not use a superior resin that can withstand high temps???? Cheers....??Not recommended due to the heat.
Oh well there goes my wife's gold jewelry, that's a hell of an expensive way Peloton25 to over come the problem. Highly unlikely that I'm or should I say my wife is going to forfeit her jewelry. Lol...... Thanks for the truly expensive alternative to the solution. Cheers....??You just need to cover the underside with gold foil, the same way they protected the carbon surfaces on the McLaren F1.
Pete it could be due to the possibility that they may have changed the resins they're currently using. The clause that I mentioned was on a pricing document and not on any bill of sale. Cheers.....??Got the MSO Carbon Rear Deck Vents ordered on my UK Spider but no appended clause on my quote or order docs. Nothing verbal from the dealer either. Perhaps they don't bother here due to the arctic weather we now seem to enjoy...
I knew I wasn't hallucinating about the whole warning, I was starting to worry there thanks MikeSCT for the backup. Cheers....??For what it is worth, the carbon fiber engine cradle in my Carrera GT has yellowed a bit. They use a special resin there versus other parts of the car. It still looks just fine. The nature of the beast I guess. I did not order the carbon vents on my not yet built Spider but look into something afterwards, from McLaren or another supplier. On the option form, there was a warning footnote.
